Ken Garon specializes in financial services and tax preparation. He has worked in the financial industry since 2001. In 2016, Ken joined Garon Financial, the company his father, Gerald Garon, founded over 20 years ago. Before joining Garon Financial, he worked at John Hancock in the global annuities division and as a tax associate at H&R Block. Most recently, he worked at Jackson Retirement and Wealth Strategies Group. At Jackson, he traveled the country helping top advisors understand how changes in tax and estate law affected their clients.
A specialization both in financial services and tax preparation brings a distinct advantage to his clients. "A good advisor needs to know your tax situation because everybody's financial situation and goals are unique," he says. He is committed to helping people every day, whether they are planning retirement, paying for college, or establishing a legacy.
Ken is a Certified Financial Planner, and completed his training certificate at Boston University in 2009. He received a Bachelor's degree in Business Management from Plymouth State College in 2000. He is also an enrolled agent with the IRS.
With 17 years of experience in financial services, Ken works with clients at all levels and brings empathy and personal attention to the family business. "People come in with anxiety about running out of money in the future, or how to pass on a substantial inheritance to their kids in a way that's efficient and responsible. I take the time to listen and address their concerns. I want my clients to know we're in this together, and they're not alone."
Ken is a weather enthusiast, maintaining a keen interest in meteorology since his childhood. He also enjoys spending time with his wife and three children, and running.
